On this week’s edition of the Lacrosse Classified podcast, we have a unique show in that for the first time in the history of the podcast, an NLL crew chief, Todd Labranche joins us for an in-depth interview as to the life of an NLL referee, the training, coaching and weekly review work that is performed, and he talks about his call in Colorado that went viral on the internet and giving Jake a misconduct in a WLA game. Ben McIntosh of the Saskatchewan Rush joins us on the podcast in another exciting interview.

Ben McIntosh who plays for the Saskatchewan Rush and PLL’s Waterdogs. McIntosh is fresh off of a big win over the Vancouver Warriors last week with a six point performance, and we talk about the Rush’s struggles at home, the return to a three-righty set and what it takes for Ben to be the best in the NLL at the quick stick.
As always, we recap Week 15 in the from around the National Lacrosse League, we play another round of Stampede Tack‘s #WhoYaGott where Evan has once again regained the lead over Jake by two games, and our Quick Sticks segment where we discuss penalizing players for squirting water at fans.
In G Wilson Construction‘s Under Review, we look into an unusual situation in Saskatchewan where a challenge on a no-goal call came during the TV timeout.
